The Zamfara State House of Assembly passed 40 bills in three years, its speaker, Nasiru Magarya, has said.

Speaking with journalists on Wednesday, Mr Magarya noted that the assembly had recorded “tremendous” achievements in the past years.

“Part of the achievements is passing of over 40 bills, and majority of them were assented to by Governor Bello Matawalle,” stated Mr Magarya.

According to him, all the bills were people-oriented.

“All our bills were passed after they had undergone various legislative processes, especially public hearings,’’ added the speaker.

The speaker attributed the successes recorded to the existing cordial relationship between the executive and legislature in the state.

“You know, we must express our appreciation to Matawalle for his kind gesture of supporting the legislature in the state,’’ Mr Magarya noted.

The speaker said that another achievement recorded was the reconstruction of the assembly’s complex by the state government.

He thanked lawmakers and the assembly staff for their support and cooperation, which he described as the basis for his achievements.

“Within three years of my leadership as the Speaker, we witnessed a complete absence of internal dispute in the house. The support I enjoyed from the entire members is my strength,’’ explained Mr Magarya.

The Zamfara assembly speaker reiterated the determination of the lawmakers to justify the mandate of the people through effective legislation.

“Our fundamental responsibilities of law-making, oversight and representation will remain our guiding principles,’’ he said.
